New Poster & Clip From Stranger Things Season 2

G4 Channel To Be Rebrand As The Esquire Channel

The move, which will look to court metrosexual viewers that History and Spike ignore, will include programming focused on gaming and lifestyle. In its bid for the largely untapped metrosexual viewership, NBCUniversal is set to rebrand G4 channel as the Esquire channel.

Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that the NBCUniversal-owned cable network has closed a deal with Esquire parent Hearst Corporation to shift the former gaming network to a destination more in line with the modern male. The effort is designed to capture a growing, upscale demographic that isn't being reached through other male networks, including adrenaline-heavy Spike and History.

Some of the new programming -- which will focus on such genres as cooking, travel and fashion -- already is in production as the rebrand is expected to take place during the first half of 2013, according to sources. True to the decade-old network's heritage, there will be gaming fare as well. 11 An NBCU spokesperson declined comme…

Samuel L. Jackson Wants To Return To Star Wars Franchise

Ewan McGregor isn't the only star who would jump at the chance to reprise his role in Star Wars 7.

Samuel L. Jackson is game to return to the flick as Mace Windu as well.

 In spite of his busy schedule (he already has three films in production), the Avengers actor told us he was "excited" that more Star Wars films were on the way and would love to be a part of them.

"I'm not surprised but totally geeked by the idea of there being more Star Wars," Jackson told E! News at the Spike TV Video Game Awards Friday. "It's like, okay, Obi-Wan was dead when episode four started, so maybe everyone thinks I'm dead and we'll find out what happened to Mace Windu. I can come back as one-armed or a one-handed Jedi that's still around that didn't actually die."

Sounds interesting, right?

When asked if he would definitely come back for the film, Jackson said, "Hell yeah!" 
"I could do that or be a ghost hologram. I don't care,&…

KILLING THEM SOFTLY Review. Great Gangster/Crime Comedy

KILLING THEM SOFTLY Review By: RAMA
So what did RAMA think of KILLING THEM SOFTLY?


Make way for writer/director Andrew Dominik because he’s crafted my favorite gangster film this year. KILLING THEM SOFTLY entertains us softly and surely. It speaks to us fans of Tarantino and Guy Ritchie’s crime comedies. Brad Pitt is perfect as hitman Jackie Cogan who doesn’t understand how some people do things, who doesn’t understand why his hitman friend becomes unreliable, but Cogan gets the job done…

Based on George V. Higgin’s novel, KILLING THEM SOFTLY stars Brad Pitt, James Gandolfini, Sam Rockwell, Richard Jenkins, Bella Heathcote, Vincent Curatola, Ray Liotta, Scoot McNairy, Ben Mendelsohn and Linara Washington, it’s about a professional enforcer, Jackie Cogan (Pitt), who investigates a heist that occurs during a high stakes, mob-protected, poker game.


I spoke with director Andrew Dominik and it’s clear from this film that what he aimed to make is not a crime comedy that has lots of things goi…

THE COLLECTION Review. One Helluva Bloody Good Time

THE COLLECTION Review By: RAMA
Let's see if RAMA thought this film held up to the first film.


I was a huge fan of the first film, The Collector, and this sequel doesn’t disappoint at all. Sure it’s a torture porn franchise, from the guys who directed many of those SAW movies, even the editor of THE COLLECTION directed SAW VI, but THE COLLECTION is just gory fun, it’s unflinchingly brutal and plain gnarly. Filmmking team Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton must really love booby traps that aim to kill because this time around, they’ve come up with a few creatively staged traps that will make you wonder what kind of demented degenerate would come up with such film..


When Elena’s (Emma Fitzpatrick) friends take her to a secret party at an undisclosed location, she never imagined she would become the latest victim of The Collector, a psychopathic killer. The Collector kidnaps and transports her to an abandoned hotel he’s transformed into his own private maze of torture and death. Upon lea…

Nicolas Winding Refn To Direct The Equalizer

The "Drive" helmer beats out a number of contenders for the Sony thriller based on the 1980s TV series.

Nicolas Winding Refn is in early talks to helm Sony's big-screen remake of 1980s TV series The Equalizer.

The project, scheduled to go into production in late spring, will star Denzel Washington as Robert McCall, a veteran covert operative who, seeking redemption for his dark deeds, quits a CIA-like agency and puts a classified advertisement in the paper that reads simply: "Got a problem? Odds against you? Call the Equalizer."

Richard Wenk (The Expendables 2) penned the screenplay.

Refn became a hot commodity following his breakout Drive, for which he won top directing honors at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival. For the Equalizer gig, the New York-born Denmark-reared helmer beat out a number of contenders. Sony began meeting with directors back in August but took its time before making an offer to Refn.

First Poster For Oblivion Starring Tom Cruise

Here is the first poster for Oblivion.

Oblivion, directed by Tron Legacy’s Joseph Kosinski, takes place in a world where Earth has been badly damaged by decades of war with an alien race known as the Scavs.

Most of the population lives above the planet, but Cruise’s Jack Harper is a drone repairman, stationed on the Earth to keep the robo-guardians of the place active against enemy incursion. But his mission is interrupted when he rescues a beautiful stranger (Andrea Riseborough) from a downed spacecraft. Her arrival triggers a chain of events that makes him question everything he knows… (Cue dramatic musical string, which we’d guess might be an Inception-style parp of horns).

With Melissa Leo, Olga Kurylenko and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau also in the cast, Oblivion is set to hit theaters in April 2013.

Image From The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug

A third EW-sourced Hobbit snap has been revealed online – following on from the Legolas There And Back Again number, as well as a new look at Barry Humphries' Goblin King – and it's all kinds of shiny. Oh, and it's from the second of the three Hobbit films, The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug.

Featuring Bilbo the "burglar" on all fours by Smaug's immense pile of gold, it's a great bit of teasing from team Jackson. Is it looking at Smaug at this point? What does Smaug look like? Why is Bilbo wearing that natty blue top? Have they reused any footage from The Goonies to fill out Smaug The Golden's magnificent haul?

 Only the cast, crew and Peter Jackson's iPad have the answers. Oh, and people who've seen The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, who will have already seen a couple of snippets of Benedict Cumberbatch's wyrm, the lucky swine.

Hitchcock Review. Doesn't Get Much Beyond The Superficial

Hitchcock Review By: MattInRC
The biopic Hitchcock doesn't get much beyond the superficial; but you'll enjoy the creepy comedic experience anyways.


The films of director Alfred Hitchcock represent some of the greatest of 20th Century cinema: Psycho, North By Northwest, Vertigo, and my favorite Notorious could appear anywhere on a videophile's top 50. There was a grace to Hitch's films, achieving more than merely matching beautiful blondes to good looking men, but wrapping them in terrific stories that grayed everyone's motives before hitting us with suprising and sometimes frightening endings. And while his inventive camera work took us on a visual lecture of Direction 101, it was the man behind some of the most compelling movies in history that have raised the biggest questions. Hitchcock doesn't try to answer too many of those, settling instead on a dramedy that's thin on accuracy but fat with a deep and talented cast. Unfortunately, it's this lack…

Ric Roman Waugh To Direct Tipping Point

Relativity Signs on Ric Roman Waugh to Direct Sci-Fi Thriller Currently-Titled Tipping Point.

Relativity Media announced today it has closed a deal with Ric Roman Waugh (Felon, Snitch) to direct and rewrite the sci-fi thriller currently-titled Tipping Point, based on the original screenplay from Todd Stein.

Tipping Point is a tense, riveting sci-fi thriller that paints an ominous picture of the world 100 years into the future. With the world’s population approaching 10 billion, the penalty for having children without a license is death – no questions, no excuses, and no mercy. Ruthless Population Control Officer Solomon Cage lives only for his job, until the day he discovers two fugitives he’s been pursuing are the love of his life who mysteriously disappeared years ago and the 12-year-old son he never knew he had.

Producing are Temple Hill Entertainment’s Marty Bowen (The Twilight Saga) and Wyck Godfrey (The Twilight Saga) alongside Relativity’s CEO Ryan Kavanaugh (The Fighter) and I…

Ghostbusters 3 Is Close According To Dan Aykroyd

Sony has yet to sign off on the long-awaited third installment, but it's getting closer, despite Bill Murray's decision to not participate.

Good news, Ghostbusters fans: The third installment in the franchise is still being planned. The bad news? There's still that sticky matter of getting it approved, funded and produced.

In a new interview with Esquire, series co-creator (and vodka salesman) Dan Aykroyd says that despite all the bumps in the road in trying to create a second sequel over 20 years after the first, the franchise's producers have agreed on a screenplay draft and are "closer than we've ever been" to making the film. And no, it does not include Bill Murray, who famously decided not to play Peter Venkman for another go-round. Yet legally, Aykroyd says he no longer needs Murray's permission to make the film, despite his producer rights.

"He abrogated his rights by sort of, by saying, two years ago he said, 'I don't want to be …

Timothy Olyphant Joins Bone Tomahawk

Justified‘s Timothy Olyphant is set to star opposite Kurt Russell, Peter Sarsgaard, Richard Jenkins, and Jennifer Carpenter in Bone Tomahawk. That film is described as a brutally violent horror-Western that will serve as the feature directorial debut of S. Craig Zahler. Dallas Sonnier and Jack Heller are producing through their Caliber Media Co. banner. Production is slated for a spring 2013 start in New Mexico.

In Bone Tomahawk, four men attempt to rescue a group of captives from a band of cannibalistic troglodytes that live beyond the edge of civilization. Olyphant will play John Brooder, an eloquent sharpshooter who moved to the frontier in order to satisfy the dark impulses that lie beneath his polished exterior.

In January, Olyphant reprises his role as U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens in the fourth season of FX’s Justified, and his most recent feature starring roles were I Am Number Four and Live Free Or Die Hard, and he lent his voice to Rango.

Tyler Perry’s TEMPTATION Poster

Seduction is the devil's playground…

Lionsgate's upcoming film, Tyler Perry’s TEMPTATION, is "provocative…sexually and otherwise," according to director Tyler Perry. His newest film pushes the boundaries of sin, sex and obsession as it explores one relationship and the unexpected consequences of infidelity. With a steamy cast, starring Jurnee Smollett-Bell (of Friday Night Lights fame), Lance Gross, Kim Kardashian, Vanessa Williams, Robbie Jones, and Brandy Norwood, this is one movie you won't want to miss!

A bold exploration of the intrigue and perils of infidelity, Tyler Perry’s Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor is a compelling love story that dives straight into the heart of obsessive passion. “It’s about a woman who starts to get restless in her relationship and her choice to be with another man has a huge effect on the rest of her life,” explains screenwriter/producer/director Tyler Perry. “She goes on a journey – in her career and in her marr…

Ender’s Game Image Of Harrison Ford

Anyone who has read Orson Scott Card’s beloved 1985 sci-fi novel, Ender’s Game, can understand why, for the past 20 years, Hollywood has been unable to adapt the book. After all, it’s challenging enough to shoot a movie about pint-sized military recruits fighting each other in a futuristic, space-set Battle School, but it’s an even taller order to capture the novel’s complex themes about war and morality. Fortunately for fans of the book, the long wait for a film adaptation is (almost) over. Ender’s Game will hit theaters on Nov. 1, 2013 (Lionsgate has just launched the film’s official Facebook page)

In the photo above, we get a first glimpse of Hugo’s Asa Butterfield (right) as Ender, standing in line with other new recruits (a.k.a. “Launchies”) early on at his time in the Battle School. He’s facing off with the imposing Colonel Graff (Harrison Ford) over whether his emails to home are being blocked. It’s telling that the two characters are clashing over communication, since they’ve…

Jack Reacher Clip. 5 Vs 1

We’re creeping ever closer to Tom Cruise bringing Lee Child’s Jack Reacher to our screens, and now a new clip from the film is online courtesy of IGN. Point your eyeballs to the top of the page to see Jack in action – but beware of stray elbows.

This latest snippet is, of course, intended to demonstrate once and for all that Cruise has what it takes to embody Child’s bruiser of a vigilante. And to be honest, he pulls it off nicely, schooling the five thugs who think they’ve cornered an easy target in the art of pain.

Jack Reacher, adapted from Child’s book One Shot by writer/director Chris McQuarrie, finds the title character called in when a former military sniper stands accused of killing five people during a shooting spree.

Watch the clip after the Jump...

He insists he’s innocent and demands that Reacher investigate. But when Jack peels back the layers of the case, he discovers much more danger that he initially figured, especially from mysterious crime figure The Zec, played by …

Jamie Foxx Confirmed For The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Alongside the news that Chronicle's Dane DeHaan has been cast as Harry Osborn is the official confirmation that Jamie Foxx, long mooted as a potential Electro, will indeed by playing the high voltage villain in The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

The director of the original Amazing Spider-Man, Marc Webb, is also back on board — perhaps no surprise considering its $751 million box office haul earlier this year — who essentially let slip that Foxx was on board in early November.

Talking to ET, Foxx is reported as saying his character is "a genius electrician-type person and he gets the short end of the stick from the whole world... The next thing you know, he turns it on."11 Marvel's official line on the character, however, goes a bit more like this:

"Raised by his overprotective mother, after his father abandoned them, Max had ambitions of being an electrical engineer. However, after being convinced by his mother that he was not smart enough to pursue such a career, Max…

Could Terminator 5 Be On It's Way?

Although it's well over a year since the deal for further Terminator films was announced, it's taken this long for the contract between Annapurna Productions and Pacificorp to be signed and sealed. With all the necessary bits dotted and crossed however, Terminator 5, in whatever form it takes, can finally move forward. And the first step on the road is new producer David Ellison.

The Terminator franchise is in some ways an odd acquistion for Annapurna, which has leaned towards indie and arthouse to date, backing the likes of The Master, Lawless and Zero Dark Thirty. In that light, Ellison's arrival makes a great deal of sense. The brother of Annapurna's founder Megan Ellison, he brings major mainstream chops via his own company Skydance, which shepherded Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, Jack Reacher, Jack Ryan and Star Trek Into Darkness into production.

Those projects, you'll notice, all have a home at Paramount, although there's nothing to suggest that the…

Rumor: DARKSEID Is The Villain in Upcoming Justice League Film

Latinoreview does it again with another great scoop. They let us in on who will be the main villain in the upcoming Justice League film. It's non other then DARKSEID.

DARKSEID is the ruler of Apokolips and Darkseid’s Elite and was a major player in the cosmic war that was the Final Crisis. Unto the hell that is Apokolips came DARKSEID, malice personified, a merciless tyrant who demanded unwavering devotion and abject fear from all his subjects. A being of unparalleled strength, DARKSEID nevertheless preferred not to sully his gloves with combat unless provoked to action. His eyes emitted the formidable Omega Sanction, ray beams that could disintegrate, teleport, or resurrect depending on the dread lord’s wishes. His sole mission in life was to find and gain control over the Anti-Life Equation which would give him the means to usurp all free will in the sentient universe. DARKSEID first appeared in Superman’s Pal, Jimmy Olsen #134 (December, 1970), and was created by Jack Kirby.

Pixar's Monsters University Teaser Posters

Before you look at the new Monsters University teaser posters below, know this: you are about to have serious letterman jacket envy.  

Frustratingly, even if you head over to the still-really-rather-impressive Monsters University website, there's no way you can order yourself a proper letterman jacket. Disney! Pixar! Have you no mercy?


Anyway, here are the posters in question, one with Mike & Sully in their dorm and another complete with some appropriately-titled books littering the floor. Would you read 'Scareonomics' if it was in your local library? It's a pretty safe bet...

Win Tickets to An Advance Screening For The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey In Sacramento

Win your tickets to see an advance screening for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey! The screening is on December 10th @ 7:00PM at Century Stadium 14 in Sacramento.


The Hobbit is a series of three epic fantasy-adventure films directed, co-written and produced by Peter Jackson and based on J. R. R. Tolkien's fantasy novel The Hobbit (1937). The films are, by subtitle, An Unexpected Journey, The Desolation of Smaug and There and Back Again, due for theatrical release in 2012, 2013 and 2014, respectively.


The series acts as a prequel to Jackson's The Lord of the Rings series and will star Ian McKellen, reprising his role as Gandalf, Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins, Richard Armitage as Thorin Oakenshield, and Benedict Cumberbatch as Smaug. Several other actors will reprise their roles from The Lord of the Rings, including Andy Serkis, Hugo Weaving, Cate Blanchett, Christopher Lee, Ian Holm, Elijah Wood, and Orlando Bloom.

Star Trek Into Darkness Teaser Poster

We think that's Benedict Cumberbatch in the shiny jacket with the dark hair, overlooking a devastated city through a hole echoing the Starfleet logo. Poster fans among you will instantly see echoes of The Dark Knight Rises teaser poster, but there are worse models to take.

Judging by a few familiar buildings on this skyline, that's 23rd century London that's been devastated by... something or someone. If you look closely you'll see the Gherkin and what looks like the London Eye, as well as Lloyds, the Shard and Tower 42. Given that G.I. Joe 2 already promises to devastate the capital next year, it looks like 2013 is a bad year to be a Londoner. On the bright side, British architects can feel pretty smug that Hollywood expects their buildings to last another 400 years.

The poster follows on the heels (nacelles?) of the recently released synopsis, which – skip ahead if you’re in any way worried about spoilers, though it’s pretty basic – reads thusly: “When the crew of t…

Dane DeHaan Cast As Harry Osborn In The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Well, that didn't take too long: mere weeks after the search for someone to play Harry Osborn in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hit the news radars, director Marc Webb has announced his choice of Dane DeHaan.

Most readers will probably recognise the actor as Andrew, the troubled, telekinetic teen who causes so many problems in Chronicle. But he’s also been seen this year in the likes of Lawless and, briefly, Lincoln.

He’s a great choice for the role, especially given his work on Chronicle, and the intensity/humanity he brought to the role. Harry, of course, is the son of Norman Osborn and who becomes a friend to Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield). But we all know that things go decidedly sour down the road.

Right now, the filmmakers are largely keeping quiet about what we can expect from the further adventures of Spidey, but with Garfield and Stone back as Peter and Gwen, and Shailene Woodley all but confirmed as Mary Jane, the plot will surely thicken. The job of chucking in narrative Oxo…

Superman Man Of Steel Poster

Moody and gritty seem so far to be the watchwords for Zack Snyder and Warner Bros.’ new take on Superman in Man Of Steel.

Taken from the teaser, it shows Henry Cavill’s Supes in handcuffs being marched down a hallway by soldiers. Obviously we figure Big Red is letting himself be captured in this way – that, or those manacles are somehow fashioned from Kryptonite. Whatever it is, we’ll find out in due course.

It’s an intriguing image, blurry and stylish, though somewhat of an odd choice for a teaser. But then, traditional doesn’t seem to be the path for this latest Superhero offering and a little originality is good for the soul.
